How I Fit Two Weeks of Clothes into Two Carry-Ons

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I want to talk about packing for a trip! Recently, I shared about my two week trip to Dallas, and I packed my two weeks of clothes in two carry-on sized bags, which I was very surprised I could do. We don't have a checked bag sized bag, our old one broke, so I had to use our two carry-on bags. I was nervous, thinking I wouldn't get everything to fit, but I did!

October 2018 Blog Traffic Report

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I wanted to share my October 2018 Blog Traffic Report. I did pretty well with consistent posting this month, which I am proud of. My traffic was pretty good this month, it kind of plateaued this month, compared to the last couple of months. I'm hoping traffic will pick back up in November, due to holiday posts coming out.

Every month I share my traffic stats to show what my numbers are, how I use social media to drive traffic to my blog and to share that it's okay to have lower numbers. Many traffic reports show these big numbers and make newer bloggers feel disappointed about their numbers. Remember, it's not always about the numbers. You can have lower numbers but a tight-knit community. Stop comparing, and do you!


Are you ready? It's time to go over October's traffic report! Every month I go over the statistics of my blog, Twitter, Pinterest. I do this to show other bloggers that it is okay if you have "small numbers".

5 Tips for Choosing a Wedding Photographer

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I wanted to share some wedding advice! Matt and I got married back in March and it was so amazing. One of the biggest things for me was to have great pictures to be able to go back and look at for years to come. A wedding photographer is one of the things I suggest making sure you have a decent budget for because pictures last forever.

What to See in Downtown Dallas

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I wanted to share with you my trip to Dallas! I have never stayed in Dallas, the last time I went to Dallas for a day trip with Matt back in 2015. I was excited, yet nervous, to spend two weeks in Dallas by myself (Matt couldn't come), but I was glad that I did have four co-workers to go out with if I felt like going somewhere.

Today I wanted to share with you my trip to Dallas! I stayed in Dallas for two weeks and here are all of the cool places I went to and recommend.

Why It's Okay to Not Know What You Want to Do

9:00 AM

Hey there! Today I want to talk about something that a lot of people are afraid or ashamed to talk about when it comes to their career, including myself. Many people when they get into college, throughout college, and even after they graduate, don't know what to do careerwise. They don't know what they truly want, or what they want to do. Not everyone has this fear, but a lot of people do, and that is okay.

July 2018 Blog Traffic Report

9:00 AM

Edit 8/8/18: It appears Pinterest's analytics software is being glitchy, therefore I cannot verify the accuracy of the data provided, except for the "Profile" section. Looking back, I can tell that my "People You Reach" stopped updating on the 28th, so that stat is not accurate. Also, on the my "Website" data, there were days that were showing 0 (the 25th and 26th) that then showed data days later. (I'm also seeing that happen for August). The data that may be inaccurate is marked with an asterisk (*).

Hey there! Today I wanted to share something that some new bloggers might have trouble with. I'm definitely an advocate of using Google Analytics to track your analytics.
